When is the best time to visit Italy?
Finding the best time to visit Italy is all about striking a balance between lower tourist numbers, and therefore less crowds, and still getting to appreciate the beautiful, temperate climate of the Mediterranean. With that in mind, the Spring and Autumn months are your best bets, with most tourists at school or work at this time of year, with the weather either warming up into summer, or just starting to cool down into winter. You will also be treated to beautiful blooms in the Spring months and wistful, glowing colors in the Autumn.
Food and drink in Italy
Italian cuisine is famous around the world, and although you have almost certainly sampled some spaghetti Bolognese or pizza in your time, there is nothing quite like having Italian food in Italy. Well-known dishes include pizza, and the best place to try it is undoubtedly Naples, where it was first invented, various pasta dishes, including cacio e pepe, ragu Bolognese, and carbonara, risotto, and fresh meat and fish dishes, particualrly in coastal regions. Italy also has a fantastic street food culture, with each region offering unqiue snacks and delicacies. Try arancini in Sicily or lemon-flavored everything in Sorrento.
For those with a sweet tooth, Italy has countless delicious treats to sample. Gelato is the most famous and an umissable experience anywhere in the country, but pastries and cakes are also a mainstay, with cannoli, tiramisu, and panna cotta featuring frequently on menus.
Italy has some fantastic drinks to enjoy. Wineries litter the central regions of the country, with the Chianti area producing a particualrly wonderful red wine. Coffee culture is also big business in Italy, with a morning espresso being an almost compulsorary part of any visit. In the south of the country, towns on the Amalfi Coast are well known for making a lemon-based liquer called limoncello.
